Default Japan Tour: Hokkaido City Signs

???

Hokkaido's road signs for its cities are very distinctive. The sign for Abashiri in the north of the island shows the drift ice (ryuho) that the area is famous for in winter.


Sapporo has its wooden clock tower (Sapporo Tokeidai) on North 1 West which is a Western-style building dating from the 1870s and built with help of the American government. The Tokeidai is the oldest building standing in the city.


Kitami goes for a rugby player with an onion as its head. Onions (as well as mint) are produced in this area of eastern Hokkaido and the town holds a rugby festival in August.
